By J Ann Crowder

We spend our lives longing for touch and kinship
 
Most of all love
 
Alone in a cosmic universe, spinning on an axel of infinite time
 
We long for conversation’s meaning
 
For a nod, a smile, or a soft affirmation in another's eyes
 
We crave validation
 
A dual thought
 
A questioning of life, together
 
We stand in wonderment, together
 
Sharing our experience
 
Longing for the same
 
Touch—connection
 
Love’s pure proclamation
 
Universal truth
 
Eternal windows
 
Ethereal wonder
 
A sacred connection
 
Unifying life
 
Creating one heart from many
 
In this, we are no longer alone

I must say, poets connect in more ways than one. It's universal as well. Further I must say that you read my mind. Last night I started a poem along the same line as yours. Not quiet the same but a longing for love and eternity- a life extended, our souls into new lives. Much like the sustaining energy that the stars, the universe, give us.
This one, yours, says it all. Love + fave. Thank you Jennifer.
